Smile Rocks Update

You know how when things are bad, and you don't think they can get any worse? And then something horrible happens, like your spleen explodes? Yeah, last night I was hit with something that I definitely don't need to be dealing with.. it just makes the running to California and hiding thing much more appealing.

Smile Rocks - Diversity

Anyway, the smile rocks – so far they've had a mixed reception. It's something that's different and unusual, and as such, people seem to be confused about how to react, like it's some sort of joke and they're not sure whether to take it seriously.

I've put down probably 25 or so rocks around the area and neighboring cities. More than half of them have "" written on the bottom to help spread the message, but the others are there just as a reminder to smile – no promotion of the "movement" involved.

One person has found a rock and guessed that it was me, and she was incredibly excited about the whole thing. I've watched other people come across them, and yes, they do smile when they pick up that little smiling rock. I've seen one girl pocket it, but most put it back where they found it (by most I mean the 3 other people that I've seen).

So, whatever happens, wherever I end up, I think the rocks will keep smiling. Until the next project takes hold, this is the least that I can do for those Earth wanderers around me.

    I have not seen anyone interact with the rocks I've left. I'd love to see more people leave rocks, and post photos on the flickr group.
